I saw this in the local market and bought 3. You may know it as Sapodilla. The colour of the fruit does not change when it ripens. You just need to gently feel the fruit as it softens when it ripens. It has a distinct sweet taste.
They seem much larger (palm size) from what I remember and probably bred to contain fewer seeds. I found only one or two black seeds in each fruit.
I remember eating this plucked from the tree in my grandmother's garden.
I tatted this based on a pattern on page 25 in the Japanese pattern book 'Tatting Lace Accessories' by Emiko Kitao. Swarovski crystal pearls in two colours were used. Tatted using Lizbeth Size 20 threads in Vineyard Harvest Col. 131.
You could wear this as a necklace but I actually made this for my reading glasses. I was a little bored after tatting so many animals and a little frustrated with the last tatting attempt.
